    Trust and privacy in the context of user-generated health data.Brandon Williams, Eliot Storer, Charles Lotterman, Rachel Conrad Bracken, Svetlana Borodina & Kirsten Ostherr - 2017 - Big Data and Society 4 (1).
    This study identifies and explores evolving concepts of trust and privacy in the context of user-generated health data. We define “user-generated health data” as data captured through devices or software and used outside of traditional clinical settings for tracking personal health data. The investigators conducted qualitative research through semistructured interviews with researchers, health technology start-up companies, and members of the general public to inquire why and how they interact with and understand the value of user-generated health data. We found significant (...)

    Reflective Writing about Near-Peer Blogs: A Novel Method for Introducing the Medical Humanities in Premedical Education.Rachel Conrad Bracken, Ajay Major, Aleena Paul & Kirsten Ostherr - 2021 - Journal of Medical Humanities 42 (4):535-569.
    Narrative analysis, creative writing, and interactive reflective writing have been identified as valuable for professional identity formation and resilience among medical and premedical students alike. This study proposes that medical student blogs are novel pedagogical tools for fostering peer-to-peer learning in academic medicine and are currently underutilized as a near-peer resource for premedical students to learn about the medical profession. To evaluate the pedagogical utility of medical student blogs for introducing core themes in the medical humanities, the authors conducted qualitative (...)

    Artificial Intelligence and Medical Humanities.Kirsten Ostherr - 2020 - Journal of Medical Humanities 43 (2):211-232.
    The use of artificial intelligence in healthcare has led to debates about the role of human clinicians in the increasingly technological contexts of medicine. Some researchers have argued that AI will augment the capacities of physicians and increase their availability to provide empathy and other uniquely human forms of care to their patients. The human vulnerabilities experienced in the healthcare context raise the stakes of new technologies such as AI, and the human dimensions of AI in healthcare have particular significance (...)

    The Shifting Aesthetics of Expertise in the Sharing Economy of Scientific Medicine.Kirsten Ostherr - 2018 - Science in Context 31 (1):107-127.
    ArgumentThe deficit model of science communication assumes that the creation and dissemination of knowledge is limited to researchers with formal credentials. Recent challenges to this model have emerged among “e-patients” who develop extensive online activist communities, demand access to their own health data, conduct crowd-sourced experiments, and “hack” health problems that traditional medical experts have failed to solve. This article explores the aesthetics of medical media that enact the transition from a deficit model to a patient-driven model of visual representation (...)
